Tiff Before the Falls
The day we left our bus didn"t leave till night so we
kicked around Buenos Aires. We saw the memorial to
the tragedy of the 2,000 men lost in the Falklands
war. It is so hard to understand war--and even harder
to understand how it happens over and over.
Dinner was what they call a Tenedor Libre (free fork).
There were 150 dishes to choose from for $3 apiece
and it was excellent barbequed meat and chef made
We saw Tango Dancers in the sreet. Everyone stops and
watches and donates a peso or two. The sad thing is
their are obviously lots of street children in the
city. They stand like acrobats on each others
shoulders in between cars in terrible traffic and
juggle for coins. Its kind of horrifying but I don't
see the terrible poverty like Peru but there are a lot
of poor in the fringes of what looks like but isn't a
European style society.
